My husband and I have a serious love for bananas! They are so versatile, creamy, sweet and tasty! This oatmeal honors our love for bananas with a serious amount of bananas creating a creamy oatmeal to make again and again. We've already enjoyed this recipe over 5 times and again this morning! Some mornings call for a nice, warm, hearty start to the day, this meal meets the requirements. You can choose the level of oats for how big of a breakfast you are seeking. This is so yummy and a big favorite of ours, especially when you add extra toppings for fun and beauty!
Banana Cream Oatmeal
We went on a drive this weekend to a cute mountain town and found berries for sale on the side of the road! They were fresh and tasted like they were just picked and washed that morning and the price was incredibly affordable. Neither of us had seen such huge, sweet berries and were so pleased we picked up a little extra on our way back home. I offered a list of dessert ideas to my husband and he picked ice cream! I thought I'd make a quick video so you can see how I make it. Now you can enjoy healthy, vegan, raw, refined sugar & gluten-free ice cream too!
A few pictures of our drive...
We went out to eat a Chinese Restaurant and were able to get a big arrangement of vegan food with some to take home. It goes to show you can be vegan on the road!
Back to the ice cream, watch this video to see how to make it or see below!
Peach-Sauce & Cinnamon Peaches
Local peaches were available at the market this last week and I was so thrilled to have some around. We first enjoyed them on our pancakes with apples and cinnamon and a scoop of banana ice cream. I made single serve pancakes by cutting down the recipe, banana ice cream from about 1-2 cups of frozen bananas, and heated peaches and apples with cinnamon until soft and placed them on top. What a tasty treat and a great way to avoid syrup.
With extra peaches to enjoy I decided to make peach sauce and replace it in my applesauce muffin recipe adding extra peach chunks!
I am so glad I followed the idea to fruition and created these juicy peach muffins. You take a bite and are warmly greeted with big chunks of fresh, warm, moist peaches. These muffins are wonderful because they are sweetened with the peaches and raisins naturally verses using refined sugar. I hope you love these moist muffins!
Peach-Sauce & Cinnamon Peaches

Thai Red Chili Hot Sauce surrounds a bounty of vegetables that have been stir-fried in a wok with a touch of coconut oil. We've enjoyed this meal three times already since creating it. I love serving it knowing it has cups upon cups of vegetables. The Thai Red Chili Peppers are surprisingly good for you too! Chilis have been shown to help burn fat, lower blood sugar levels, boost circulation, help thin the blood helping to prevent strokes, reduce inflammation, provide pain relief, clear congestion, stop the spread of prostate cancer and more.
Pass me a plate, I'm taking care of myself with a big serving of vegetables, rice and chilis that will make me feel full yet fabulous! You can too! Here is the anticipated recipe, this was very popular on instagram!

Take your senses to Thailand over a big steaming bowl of Kao Pad Thai Fried Rice. Perhaps you envision the tropical beaches that look like they are out of a movie, or that you are dining at a large royal palace, visiting a temple afterwards and seeing the many Buddha figures. Maybe you envision this meal in the fast paced city at a styling restaurant. Or maybe reality will sink in that you are just at home in your comfy clothes enjoying a dish of homemade Kao Pad Thai Fried Rice. At least for the duration of the meal you can try to envision being swept away, if only for a moment. The savory flavors whirled together had my husband and I both eating every last bite and I can only hope the same for you.
Cups of fresh vegetables are stir-fried in a wok with rice and covered in a homemade Thai Red Chili Hot Sauce, served with cucumber slices on the side. "Gin khao yung" - Have you eaten yet? :)
This recipe is almost exactly like the Thai Chili Lime Vegetable Stir Fry with Rice, the only difference is how it is prepared and presented. I like to make the Thai Chili Lime Vegetable Stir Fry and follow up with the Kao Pad Thai Fried Rice the following day.

Thai Red Chili Hot Sauce is a keeper in our home! Ever since I met my husband I've yet to see him order a '10' in spice level and have it be hot enough, or go out and order salsa and chips and have the salsa or surrounding hot sauces suitable or his palette. I found these little dried red chili peppers at the market and they provide just the right spice I was looking for. These little peppers are packed with some serious heat! If you aren't drinking enough water, you will be after this recipe! It took me a while to share as I kept having to make it with less peppers for it to be consumable by the masses. Not everyone craves the same amount of heat as my husband. I started with a whopping 24 peppers, with instant sweat, a burning tongue, lots of glasses of water, cucumber slices to cool off I thought I may want to go for 12. Meanwhile, my husband was licking the edges enticed by the spiciness and pleased that someone met and potentially exceeded his threshold. We tried it again at 24 but with rice, we still really enjoyed it but still too hot for the common household. I didn't measure any the next batch, bad idea! It was the bottom of the bag and all the red pepper flakes made it into our sauce, that was actually kind of painful and we ate plain rice to cool off our hot mouths. Finally I decided I better cut this in half. I made it with 12 peppers and still found that it was too hot for the average person. My tongue was burning, I instantly started sweating with my nose running. Alas, just yesterday I trimmed it down to 3 peppers. This leaves enough spice to get your attention, leave a tingly sensation that is slightly hot on your tongue and doesn't overpower the other flavors in this sauce. I don't know what spice level you prefer so I recommend starting with 1 and working your way up, taste a little and see how your tongue responds, if you like it stop, if you want it hotter, keep going. Maybe you are like my husband who felt the general public would like 3 peppers but he'd like a touch more and even happily consumed 12 and up to 24! He is my brave taste tester who goes through the sampling process with me. I hope you enjoy this delightful fusion of 4 very simple flavors. Garlic, soy, lime and red chili peppers come together to make a sauce worthy of keeping and making again and again! New recipes coming in the next post!
